Following a multimillion-dollar refurbishment, we take a first look at Cunard's Queen Victoria.
When Cunard's Queen Victoria sailed into Southampton this week it did so with all the elegance you would expect following a $57 million refurbishment.
The ship now boasts a new Britannia Club Restaurant, redesigned Queen Grill Suites and penthouses, a new sun deck, and enhanced winter garden.
Plus every stateroom has been refreshed, with fresh interiors, flat screen TVs and tea and coffee-making facilities.
The refurbishment takes inspiration from the ship's Art Deco heritage, with the elegant interiors passengers expect from Cunard's Queen ships.
Ahead of its first sailing to the Canary Islands, Cunard yesterday released first-look pictures of the new look.
